ESOF Problem

2 problems really. My electric 4x4 isn't working, i turn the little knob and it does nothing. Second problem is whenever i downshift manually, i blow the fuse that controls the instrument cluster. I imagine these 2 are somehow related due to the fact that they are both dealing with shifting stuff.

Anyone have any ideas?

If you take the covers off the stering colum you will see two small wires going to the over drive button. if you follow the wire you will find a spott were the wire is strped or pinched. So every time you shift it is grounding out that curcit and blowing the fuse.

Mine doesn't have tow/haul, its just got the OD off button, which doesn't blow the fuse.

When you pull the cover off the steering colum the wires will be on the top of the collum. when your looking at the wires run the shifter trough all the gears slowly and you should find the spot.
